Our Hearts Go Out to Houston

Achieving the Dream institutions in the Houston area have long distinguished themselves for their dedication to transformative change and increased student success. Over many years, 15 current and former ATD colleges and universities, including seven Leader Colleges, have been working to strengthen their local and regional economies, rebuild the middle class, and guide their students to achieve their goals. They have served as leaders in their communities and models for other institutions of higher education. 

But now the ATD colleges so committed to helping others need help themselves. The flooding and destruction we have watched with horror is continuing. So if you are able, please consider making a donation to any of the charities working to aid the people of Texas who so desperately need it, especially the most vulnerable.

ATD’s Houston area colleges and universities are resilient, and we know their exceptional commitment to their students and their communities will help them find the strength to continue through this devastating experience. For now, though, I encourage you to join ATD in doing as much as you can to help them.
